Maybe you've never heard of it, so let me help you out:
Look close: a full dose of creatine, nitrates, malic acid, tyrosine and other nootropics, beta alanine, l-aspartic acid, and more. That's 14gr of active ingredients per scoop, and you never need more than one. It's crash free. Pumps are just stupid on Fierce. It tastes so****inggood! But don't take my word for it:

This received a 10 based on a low rep workout, which makes me wonder what sort of pump would have been achieve using a higher volume "pump" style routine. I was completely amazed and not expected that much pump. Seriously, it is very close to the best pump product I have ever used. Ever. The pump was completely ridiculous, and I say again this was a low rep workout.
Energy: 9 The energy was definitely there, I can say that I have experienced more energy from other pre-workouts. That being said it was a good sort of energy. I didn't feel like I needed rehab or anything like that. No cracked out feeling, it took about 20 minutes to start and then about 30-35 minutes to fully peak. The energy lasted throughout the entire workout. I had no gas left in my tank when I finished. So it had just enough to complete my 1.5 hour workout. The energy was smooth though and there was no real crash. It did end sort of abruptly I recall finishing up with some heavy bicep curls, and thinking I am so glad this is my last set. Within 5 minutes of finishing that last set I was completely wiped out. So it packs enough punch to go for at least 1.5 hours of heavy lifting.
Endurance: 9 This sort of coincides with the energy factor, but is more related toward how the energy was throughout the workout. So I can say that it was fairly solid. My typical workouts are usually under an hour, but I spent about 1.5 hours in the gym on 2 packs of FIERCE. It had just enough for me to finish, so it was pretty decent in the endurance category.
Focus: 10 The focus actually seemed to kick in before I go to the gym. I was sort of in the zone on the drive there, and I had arrived before I even realized it. Despite hitting several red lights, I didn't even seem to notice them because I was so intent on the task at hand - getting to the gym.
Cherry Flavor Taste: 7 I am a huge fan of cherry everything, it's my favorite fruit. My favorite flavoring, everything about cherry is my favorite. That being said...this was not my favorite. It barely tasted like cherry to me at all. Kudos on attempting something most companies seem to shy away from, but it wasn't very successful. I've talked to other people who have used this, and we seem to have a difference of opinion in this regard. I just know that I LOVE cherry and so perhaps I had a very high standard in this regard.
Orange Flavor Taste: 8.5 To me this was much better done than the cherry. Again I've had some people disagree with me on this point, but I didn't come at the orange with very high expectations. So I was pleasantly surprised, especially since I've had a lot of very shoddy orange flavored supps in the past. So it was definitely better than I anticipated.
Mixability: 10 I think that this stuff might be the best mixing pre-workout I've ever used. It's definitely up there, the stuff mixed almost without shaking. It was pretty incredible.
Overall Effectiveness Score: 9.5 This score is a combination of factors. The pump, the energy, the sustainability of said energy, as well as the increased focus on the task at hand. This is a very high effectiveness score, and despite my not being a huge fan of the cherry flavor I would definitely recommend SAN's FIERCE to anyone interested in an effective pre-workout. I've used quite a few, the number of pre-workouts I have used is close to 20 at this point. SAN's FIERCE is definitely a FIERCE competitor.Originally Posted by MrCooper69Mixability
The samples mixed pretty quickly except for a little bit of grit, that stayed at the bottom of the cup. Unfortunately, this grit was bitter and chalky as hell, but who cares...it's a preworkout, FORCE IT IN.
All my samples were the cherry. I know a lot of people didn't like it, but I personally LOVED the flavor (minus the bitter grit at the bottom). I will say this...it tastes NOTHING like cherries lol. But it's still very good, like a sweet passionfruit shake.
I LOVE the energy on Fierce. It really is one of the top energy products I've ever tried. It doesn't overstim me at all, and I definitely get a mood uplift from the G. The energy doesn't creep in or hit you...in fact, I can barely even notice it's there. I just feel more motivated and slightly happier while on it. I actually prefer this because I don't feel like I'm entering a new world after I take my preworkout like I do with some products. My mindset and thought process are clear, and I do everything with a level head. I know it has 200mg caffeine, but it doesn't feel like it. Felt a lot like XF Vengeance actually. A+
Again, I'm spoiled, repping for SNS and being a longtime Ultima user. It's tough to impress me in the focus department. While SAN Fierce didn't change my mindset as I noted above, I feel like the energy and performance benefits indirectly played into the focus. The tyrosine + caffeine combo is tried and true, and I honestly had such a nice mood uplift on Fierce that I just wanted to lift and not socialize. The mildest aspect of Fierce, IMO, but still well done.
Ok. WTF. I know Fierce has creatine nitrate. But these pumps...I'm telling you, they are BEYOND most nitrate products out there. Damn near beyond agmatine and hemavol. I'm doing 5/3/1. I don't train for pumps. I almost never get pumps, ever. But doing 1 set of pullups, or 1 set of curls, or even 1 set of shoulder press, had my muscles inflated like I'd been doing multiple sets of high rep work. NO POISON DON't COME IN HERE AND SAY IT WAS THE ARGININE . JK, obviously the formula of Fierce is well done because as far as stimulant-based products go, THIS IS THE SINGLE BEST PUMP SUPPLEMENT I'VE EVER USED.
Fierce is very similar to XF Vengeance in this regard as well. I feel like it's Vengeance's more stimmed cousin actually. The endurance is FANTASTIC. On my all-out sets that Jim Wendler prescribes, I was pushing new PRs every time I used Fierce. And this is NOT placebo because these all-out sets have me going to failure every time. Particuarly with respect to squats and deadlifts, which were going in the 10-12 rep range on my all-out sets, I could eek out an extra 1-2 reps, and was actually surprised how easily they came, considering the week before I was struggling mightily. And this was during an intense cutting period, so I was only seeking to maintain strength, not improve. Interset endurance was also elevated...I wanted to workout longer cuz I felt so damn good. But the intraset endurance is where this really shined. Nitrates + malate + aspartic acid ftw.
Here is something to consider. With Fierce, you only EVER need 1 scoop. And you also hit your daily creatine needs each time you use it. Considering this...
Fierce is a WINNER. One of the best stimmed formulas on the market. If I were to rank stimmed preworkout products, it goes:
1. XF Vengeance
2. SAN Fierce
3. Presurge Unleashed
4. Omega Flashover
5. Focus XT
That's right, Fierce is THAT GOOD. I highly suggest you try it if you haven't already.
Cooper ApprovedOriginally Posted by bulkypinoy61The ENRGEY and PUMP was freaking insane today
LONG DROP SETS + FIERCE = WIN!!!!
TASTE: Tangy Orange 10/10, Wild Cherry 8/10
-I am always a big fan on orange flavor products, so SAN Tangy Orange was an A+ for me
-Also this is probably one of the few Cherry Flavored products that I actually liked
-Both mixes very easily and fast
-It was not one of the best that I have used, but it sure did boost my workout intesity, specially while doing those long drop sets
-All I have to say is High Intesity Drop Sets + SAN Fierce = Skin Bursting Muscle Pumps
-no after workout crashes
-no jittery feeling
-increase muscle pumpOriginally Posted by tacticalreloadTaste: 9/10 Wow, couldn't believe that the cherry was just as good as the orange. I figured it would score lower, but these two flavors were both great.
Effectiveness: 9/10 Another workout crushed. I literally thought I was taking too short of a break between sets to my detriment.Originally Posted by dem9Here is an initial taste review, will edit later for an review on its effects
Taste: 9/10. Very good, I can't say I have had too many, if any at all, cherry flavored products to compare this to but either way it is an extremely enjoyable flavor.
Okay, so just had a great workout and here is the rest of the review:
Energy: Nothing crazy but a great smooth clean energy level that last through out my workout. 9/10
Pump: Great pump, my shoulders felt like cannon balls. 9.5/10
Endurance: I literally did not want to leave the gym, this helped me feel like I could lift for hours on end. 10/10
Other notes: no stomach issues whatsoever which is a HUGE plus and I did not/have not crashed.
Today I tried the orange flavor at I was a little hesitant at first because the last orange flavor I had was Animal Rage and that didn't taste good at all.
Taste: 9/10. This was surprisingly very good and pretty refreshing.
Energy: 9/10. Once again I had a nice smooth level of energy that carried me through a long workout after an even longer workday.
Pump: 10/10 The pump today was out of this world. I tried to take my tee-shirt off after my workout and I literally struggled for a solid minute or two. My back and biceps were as pumped as they have ever been.
Endurance: 9/10. Great endurance, once again I just wanted to keep going at the weights.
As mentioned before I still experienced zero stomach issues or crash problems.
I can do this all day: legit reviews from standup guys. Fierce is that good. So who would like to see it carried at Nutra?
